Bank Holiday tuneage...

Kid CarpetThere's no doubt that I have strange musical tastes, but it's rare that they'll converge in the way they seem to have today.

Take Kid Carpet, for example; I was idly looking to see if his website was back up (it is - yay!) only to find that he's recently released his debut single - Your Love, and has a CD called Ideas and Oh Dears due out in July. You can see the really rather cute video to Your Love here (6.7MB Quicktime)

The Trachtenburg Slideshow PlayersWhile I was trying to find out more information about the single at his record label - tiredandlonesome.com - I discovered that he had recently been on tour with his label-mates, the unusual Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players.

This is a band comprising a bloke called Jason (keyboards & vocals), his 9-year-old daughter Rachel (drums & vocals) and wife Tina (slide projector) who sing songs about photos, basically. Think They Might Be Giants meets Half Man Half Biscuit and you're not far off.

You can see some samples of their work here and here, and their CD (Vintage Slide Collection from Seattle Vol. 1) is available at all good record shops.
